Volunteer of the Week
Gene Carlone
Habitat for Humanity of Durham

Everyone knows that Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates homes, but did you know that they also build children’s playhouses?  Gene Carlone leads the Playhouse Program, which raises funds for Habitat, helps local non-profits, and brightens the lives of countless children.  Gene and his Playhouse Geezers—a group of retired volunteers—guide teams from local corporations who donate money and spend a full day designing, building and painting playhouses, which are then given to non-profit organizations.  

Since 2013, this program has built 74 playhouses and has raised approximately $150,000.  Gene is not only a great leader, with the skills and vision to keep the Playhouse Program running smoothly, but he’s also a skilled craftsman and a patient teacher and mentor.  He’s won the admiration of everyone he works with, from his fellow Geezers to his fellow Board members. 

Thank you, Gene, for making this worthwhile program such a success!
